An Ely-based building firm is celebrating after scooping a prestigious award at a national ceremony last month.
D.G. Building won the title of Best Local Builder or Traditional Craftsperson at the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards Grand Finals.
The LABC Building Excellence Awards are the largest business to business awards in the building control sector.
The awards highlight teams that have battled with complex issues as well as building site constraints during construction. They showcase creative solutions and building control professionalism that leads to safe, sustainable and high-quality construction projects.
Jason Johnson, Building Control Team Leader at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “We were more than happy to endorse D.G. Buildings nomination.
“We have worked with David for approximately 12 years and seen his company grow from a fledgling one man business to a thriving, respected construction company.”
Councillor Neil Hitchin, service delivery champion for building control at East Cambridgeshire District Council said: "The Building Control team put their heart and soul into working with local contractors to provide a positive building experience for everyone.
“Our philosophy is about building relationships with local construction companies. D.G. Buildings continuously tender for projects that are beneficial to the local community and they go to great lengths to ensure all their work is of the highest standard.
“It's excellent to see them recognised for their outstanding work. Thoroughly well deserved.”
Director of D.G. Building, David Gipp, was particularly commended for a new-build site where his team overcame a number of challenges, including having no mains gas supply and opting to use air source heat pumps to provide a more eco-friendly source of heat.
On the award win, David Gipp said: “I’m absolutely thrilled D.G. Building has been recognised in such wide-scale national awards. It's an amazing achievement for us, and gives well deserved recognition for all the hard work my team have put in over the last few years."
“We pride ourselves on carrying out all of our projects to the highest standards, and are able to carry out all types of work from accessibility conversions right through to new builds which sets us apart from most companies."
“We enjoy a great working relationship with the team at East Cambs Building Control, and are looking forward to many more successful years working with them to deliver a first-class construction service to the local area.”
